Hello Andrew, a late welcome at the Commons ;-) and thanks for your photos from the Wikimania. I've some little hints for you.
Could you please put further images directly into one of the galleries here? And it would be more convenient if you write
photo by [[User: Fuzheado|Andrew Lih]] instead of only raw text (this is useful for other projects which use the commons images, see the information on meta:Image:Wikimania05-banner.jpg for example. And you could use the Babel tags on your user page for interested people with questions - I always suggest that because Commons is a really international project, not because the boxes are so nice ... I don't even like them ;-)

Hey Andrew, regarding your Wikimania photos - could you put license into these photos, which don't have it yet? The photos are simply great, and I'd love to use them in some Wikinews articles, but I can't do it before you'll choose a license for them. Much appreciated! Datrio 19:50, 4 August 2005 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit
Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.
1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:
2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.
- [[Category:Category name]]
For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:
- [[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.
